COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT IS NOT A FORM OF FLATTERY! - 05/20/09 07:09 AM
Many thanks to Lenn Harley for once again very clearly defining copyright and laying out her approach to theft of her on-line content. It is fascinating to see the cavalier responses she repeatedly receives from those who infringe. I have had my own photos cut and pasted and posted on line from Flickr by other agents, and it is dismaying to say the least. Thanks, Lenn:

Let's visit Stoneybrook Estates, a beautifully mature neighborhood of 1960's and 1970's homes in a great central location in Cary, NC, adjoining Farmington Woods. View current Homes For Sale in Stoneybrook Estates. Once in the neighborhood, you will be entranced by the beauty of lush mature landscaping, including blooming azaleas, and tall, arching mature shade trees. Stoneybrook Estates was built at a time when houses were placed among the trees, and the trees were honored, rather than clear cut with disdain.
Stoneybrook Estates is located on the south side of Southeast Maynard Road, just east of the intersection (0 comments)

I want Carolina Hurricanes Hockey Tickets! Help! Emergency! - 05/06/09 07:35 AM
I do. It's time to pull out the stops, and go public with my quest. Friday night, Game 4 of the second round of the playoffs. I want to take my sweetie to see the Canes clobber the Bruins. Should be a nicely rowdy crowd making a TON of noise at the RBC Center in Raleigh. The RBC Center is the "Loudest House in the NHL." I would like to be a contributor to help preserve that distinction. Yes, I was at the box office on Monday. $60 or $250. Either the corners of the 300 level or the Champions Club. (3 comments)
I do not know John Wall. But the internet sure makes it a small world, in a roundabout way... - 05/05/09 09:53 PM
Nope. I don't know John Wall, but I know of his basketball skills and of the bright future he holds in his hands. I know he has found the basketball spotlight in Raleigh, NC, and in prep basketball and in the college hoops recruiting worlds. There is even speculation that he should jump directly to the NBA. He says he wants "the College Experience." I hope that includes a degree. John Wall is 18, 6-4, about 175 pounds. Quite a few years ago, I was 18, actually nearly 6-5, and about 175 pounds. There the resemblence ends. No one ever categorized me as a "speed merchant." And the (8 comments)
Raleigh-Cary, North Carolina: Basements? Sure! We have them. - 05/05/09 05:08 PM
Relocatees to the Triangle often ask, "Why are there no basement homes in Raleigh area? Well, there are. We have basement homes in Cary. We have them in Raleigh. And in Apex and Morrisville. Basements are not the rule, however. See, we don't have the issues here that folks have to deal with in colder climates. We only have a 15" frost depth in Cary and Raleigh. This means that the top of the foundation footer for a home only must be 15" below the surface to avoid frost heave. To get a basement would entail excavation of another 8 feet (2 comments)
Fabulous older Triangle home? Or newer construction? - 05/01/09 06:47 AM
The topic of polybutylene plumbing pipes recently sparked a little exchange in another venue, one in which I just had to participate.Modern methods vs. historical methods.Modern materials and components vs. historical materials and components.I like a historical gem of a home as well as the next person. Historic Oakwood. Boylan Heights. Mordecai. All great Raleigh neighborhoods with wonderful examples of old homes that have been loved. We have nothing like these in Cary. But I don't have blinders on regarding the topic of quality across time. we have slap stick builders today. Of course. We have always had slap stick builders, all (0 comments)
